Maybe if you wash the wool and re skein it, that way giving it a chance to breath. Maybe the stretch will return. Cant Hurt

Yeah you're right, I think I might at least roll it out on my swift and see what's going on with it. It's the strangest thing I've ever seen in regards to yarn. It feels like a big dryer ball.

I've been MIA lately, so busy with the girls and knitting and house stuff!

Congrats on the BFP's, ladies!!!!!

Lynne, sorry about the bus drama. Glad your DS is alright. :hug:

I think I'm going to cast on my Lost in the Woods today for my Ivey!!! After that, I get to do a YYMN using Mosaic Moon scraps on Gaia bulky.

Question: I know there was some discussion a little while back about switching colors for scrappies. So, do you all just start the new yarn without doing anything special, or twist them together, or what? Can someone tell me the best way to do it?
Thanks!

tim.
We have my sister's wedding to go to today. I'm doing pictures though so I don't have to get too dressed up. Little hard to lay on the floor and climb on chairs with hills and a skirt

I love the smell of wet yarn. Here it is, it is Montana 100% merino wool.:

I like that. What'd ya use?

anyway, Im happy with how they all turned out (except the colorway one). I think Im going to dye up enough today for an andalusia for Piper.
Flip a chair over, use about 3 legs. Have some one hold the loose end or tie it around the leg. Start wrapping
